Reading things labeled as "takes" ("hot", "cold", or otherwise) often feels like "X take: [...]" could instead be read "fundamental attribution error: [...]".
Like, not *always*, but it often seems like a "this is how it seems to me, and I'm not that interested in what anyone else's experience is", and... I'm not a huge fan of that. (I'm very possibly interested in your opinion and experience! I just don't know that they're the only ones that are valid.)
@aschmitz i agree that this is how the word is typically used these days (which is not the same as how it was originally deployed, but that is neither here nor there)
i don't have a problem with it though; if someone isn't interested in considering alternate viewpoints (hopefully, just not interested at the moment, not not interested ever) i kinda PREFER them being upfront about it, as it saves us both time
